    Those myuki beads make a great pattern for ladder stitch, and the multiple colors make it look really expensive. Besides, I love anything that LOOKS complicated but isn’t. The button is the crowning glory and pulls it all together. Love, love, love this! Lisa, i hope you don’t mind; I definitely must mooch this idea. ;)

    M Watts: No further instruction on this page, however there is a tutorial here for ladder stitching available here:

    VA Beachchick:
    Size 6 seed beads are good 1.5 or 2mm is good for the leather.
